Soulful Time Management Retreat

"Life is beautiful. Don't miss it."

Grab your journal and come listen to the wisdom of your inner self as you create a plan for living your Beautiful Life in 2021...

Here's what you'll walk away with:

  • Deep clarity on what it means to live your Beautiful Life
  • Explicit goals and intentions that are anchored in what truly matters to you
  • Perspective on how you currently spend your time, energy, and attention — and what needs to change to bring your Beautiful Life into being
  • Self-compassionate (and science-based) strategies for releasing obstacles to your Beautiful Life — and for keeping yourself motivated to work towards your vision
  • A soulful plan for self-care that sidesteps guilt and "shoulds"
  • Insight into how to use your productivity tools to keep yourself organized, clear, and on-track with your goals and intentions
  • An understanding of your unique style and how to choose methods that fit you
  • Inspiring rituals, readings, and resources you can draw on going forward

Soulful perspective and change . . .

The quality and substance of our lives is determined by the choices we make every day about how we invest our most fundamental personal resources — our time, energy, and attention.

This retreat will help you create a vision for your life in the coming year so you can set clear intentions about how you wish to invest these precious resources.

And then you will be guided through a sequence of experiences to help you line up the strategies, tools, and practices that will help you stay aligned with your intentions — including careful attention to creating space for self-care as a foundation for your effectiveness in other aspects of your life.

The retreat can be done from the comfort of your own home via Zoom. (Or sneak off someplace special if you like! Just make sure there's reliable internet access.)

The weekend includes time in community as well as time alone to plan, reflect, and renew.

Come tap into your inner wisdom — and access supportive coaching and community — to help make 2021 the year it could be.

A Life Changing Experience

I have tried for SO many years to reach the place your program has created for me. It was truly a life changing experience. The value is simply priceless in terms of creating a beautiful life and getting unstuck. 

— Carol Maloney-Scott

The Perfect Blend

The co-mingling of the soulful and tactical was key for me. I walked out with a map for myself and a planning approach that sounds like it will be really fun and helpful. This was a great use of my time and money.

— Shannon C.

A Real Godsend

My time with you was a Godsend... I arrived overwhelmed by the demands on my time. I left with a sense of purpose and real "tools" to allow me to define and live my Beautiful Life! Thank you, Elaine!!

— Andrea Larkin

Deep & Meaningful Impact

Elaine, you have impacted my life in a deep and meaningful way and I want to say thank you!! I had a lot to sort out after my divorce, and your retreat provided the space and tools for planning my next steps. I just became a homeowner again, and I know it was last year's retreat that made it possible!

— Toni M.
